We’ve come a long way from cartridges and Super Nintendo. The Wii U is Nintendo’s latest system with a two-screen gaming experience on a tablet controller (the clearly named GamePad) and the first HD Nintendo gaming system that allows gameplay for up to five people on select games. Off-TV play on the GamePad also allows for placeshitfing play without a TV. It’s also compatible with older generation Wii games and controllers, so no worries about having to toss that beloved copy of Mario Kart.
Starting at $299.99 | Nintendo
